Canal St-Martin & Buttes-Chaumont A Part of Paris
 
Canal saint martin buttes de chaumontThe 5-kilometre (3-mile) canal, opened in 1825, provides a connection between river Seine and l'Ourcq. It has long been loved by novelists, film directors and tourists alike. It is dotted with barges and pleasure boats that leave from the Port de l’Arsenal. At the north end of the canal is the Bassin de la Villette waterway and the elegant Neo-Classical Rotonde de la Villette, spectaculary floodlight at night. The last years, the area has become the favourite hang out for Parisians and many new restaurants and bars have opened on the sides of Quai de Jemmapes and Quai de Valmy. On Sundays and Bank Holidays, a part of the canal is closed for car traffic. Bring your roller blades or pick-nick basket and envoy the peaceful oasis in the heart of Paris!
The northeast part of Paris is little known to many visitors, yet it contains one of Paris’ largest and most beautiful parks and some fascinating architecture. The Buttes-Chaumont is a vast hill complete with a lake, a huge island and folly, rocky outcrops and a wonderful variety of trees and plants.
Also worth a visit ; Le Cimetière du Père Lachaise. Paris’ most prestigious cemetery is set on wooded hill overlooking the city. The land was once owned by Père de la Chaise, Louis XIV’s confessor, but was bought by order of Napoleon in 1803 to create a new cemetery. The cemetery became so popular with the Paris bourgeoisie that it was expanded six times during the century. Here were buried celebrities such as the writer Honoré de Balzac, the composer Frédéric Chopin, the popular singer Edith Piaf, the writer Oscar Wilde and more recently , the singer Jim Morrison and the actor Yves Montand. Famous graves and striking funerary sculpture make this a pleasant place for a leisurely, nostalgic stroll.
